Precious Memories and More to Come!

This pic was taken at Big Cedar, near Branson, last winter when Sissy joined us there,  We're planning another trip this November.  Sissy will go with us and Ruthie and Phil will meet us there as well as Tom and Linda.  Tom and Linda are as close to family as anyone can be, so it will be like a family reunion. We're so looking forward to it!

Today's testing all went smoothly.  Tomorrow we see the oncologist and get his analysis of the situation and his plan for the near future.  I feel really good and don't see any swelling happening.  I started another week of Xeloda today, so I'm hoping that continues to go smoothly!

Our plan is to leave the 16th of this month and head toward a couple of nights with Tom and Linda in Tennessee.  Then we'll head on to a week in Nashville and a high school reunion with my Itazuke group.  I'm praying that God will help me to stay stable enough to make these trips.  I'm planning like I believe He will!  What better way to approach the future:  trust God to take care of things.  Works for me!


  1. Oh Jo, how sweet! We feel the same way about you and Lee! We are also looking forward to spending time with Ruthie and Phil, plus we get the pleasure of meeting your sister!! See you soon! Safe travels! We are heading to Charlotte, NC this morning so Tom can help his youngest son, Tommy, who just moved into a wonderful home there! PTL! My little Prissy not doing well at all so we are taking her with us, and pray the trip will not be too hard on her. Love you! Linda

  2. Aw, poor Prissy! I dread the trip for her, but she'll probably be in your lap the whole way, so you and she will both love that.

    We can't wait for you to meet our Sissy and watch the three of us in action. It's amazing how she's like Ruthie and I both. I guess we're just wired a lot alike! Safe travels to NC!

  3. Yippy, Yippy, Here comes Skippy!!! This is exciting news, and we are looking forward to it. The "old folks" won't be joining in hiking or anything, but will be there and enjoy all we can! So glad you are able to plan a trip or two!!! Amazing! Love U! Ruthie

  4. I don't know how much hiking any of us 'old folks' may be doing, but we'll go to the Big Cedar fitness center at least! I can hardly wait to get us all together!
